November trip to Myanmar and Cambodia

Jump to last reply

Can I have you opinions and suggestions please ?
I am trying to fill in a few blanks for this trip.

Have I got the number of nights per place right ? Our interests are culture, scenery, ruins, food and temples...not necessarily in that order. I'd appreciate some of the marvellous Fodors insight before locking down number of days in each spot after Mandalay.

I'd like to keep the hotel budget at USD $100 per night on average, so can pay more or less say 20%.

We have been to both Myanmar and Cambodia before, this itinerary seeks to cover a few new places. We are going to a wedding in Mandalay on 21 November, so those dates are not changeable.

Nothing else is booked except some free cancellation hotels. Flights as described are available, at the moment.

18 November arrive Yangon stay 2 nights. Hotel booked $105 per night.

20 November fly to Mandalay stay 4 nights, not everyone's favourite destination, but we'll have friends to catch up with and a few new temples to see. B & B booked, $40 per night, this could be interesting.

24 November transfer to Hsipaw stay 3 nights. This is a new place for us. For those who have taken the train over the Gokteik Viaduct, how was it ? I had some trepidation on the circle line in Yangon last year....
In Hsipaw, I was thinking one day of easy trekking, and one for markets, temples and exploring the town. Does that sound about right ?
Any accommodation recommendations ?

27 November transfer to Mandalay for afternoon flight to Siem Reap via Bangkok. Stay in SR 4 nights. Any outstanding cooking schools you can recommend in SR ? Guest houses or hotels ?

1 December transfer to Battambang stay 3 nights. Not sure how to make the transfer ? Bus, boat, private car ? Quickest way would suit me. Another new place, we'd like to see temples, perhaps the bamboo train, other suggestions ? Any hotel or restaurant recommendations ?

4 December transfer to SR for afternoon flight to Sihanoukville stay 1 night. Hotel recommendations, preferably close to restaurant choices ?

5 December car transfer to Kampot stay 3 nights. Pepper farms ? Day trip to Kep ? It's another new place, we'd like to visit Bokor NP whilst in this area.

8 December car transfer to Phnom Penh stay 3 nights. Hotel recommendations ?
We've seen the major attractions, do you have any offbeat ideas ?

11 December depart PP at 15.10.

So that's the itinerary, Days Nov 27 to Dec 11 can be easily changed.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, and sorry for the length of this post. This is a great forum !
